Ford’s All New F-150 Raptor Is Every Mans Wet Dream

The Truck Of All Trucks

All signs say the 2017 Ford Raptor 3.5 EcoBoost will be rated to 450 horsepower at 5,000 RPM and 510 lb-ft of torque at 3,500 RPM with a towing capacity of 8,000 pounds. That torque squeaks by Ford’s last GT supercar, which put down 550 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. I love trucks and in my opinion this is the badass truck you can drive off the lot in. I mean what other truck can you send off a sand dune straight from the factory. Well ford pretty much has the market cornered with this one. The best thing about the raptor model is somehow everyone knows how badass they are. I have seen college girl swoon over the sight of one, how many other pick ups can do that? Very few…

 

A part of me somewhat enjoys the fact that this thing is basically a middle finger to “Bro” truck guys who worship the V8 regardless of recent advances in engine technology. The other part of me doesn’t sit well seeing a big, monster of a flagship truck with a V6 inside of it. It just feels off, but I bet it will be a ton of fun regardless of how much shit ignorant people will throw at it. Almost certain it can’t fit in my garage though… that’s a problem. Also the price tag. These bad as rigs will cost you $65k plus tax and licensing… if you can even find one. The ones that haven’t been pre sold have an insane deal mark up, putting them around $85k…..For a truck. I feel like anyone who drops that money on a truck won’t want to take it to the dunes and push it to it’s full potential, but hey Ford knows what they are doing so their must be a market.

Ford Raptor is Insane
